Postpartum Doula 

Professional Holistic and Ayurvedic Postpartum Care: nesting, nourishing and empowering new families

The Sacred Window is the way Ayurveda refers to the first 45 days after giving birth.

 

 

 

The special care I offer varies based on your postpartum stage:

during the first 10 days I offer complimentary care to the one offered by your kraamzorg. My focus is on supporting perineal healing, digestive and elimination functions, your energy levels as well as dealing with afterpains and breast conditions. 

I'm there for you, any moment you need me.

 

From day 10 to day 45 

my focus is on supporting your general healing process based on what your needs are: Ayurvedic Massages with medicated oil and nourishing foods will be supportive of your hormonal balance. I will support you along the process while you become steady and find your pace.

You may need me afterwards to support you on a later stage of your postpartum after the first 6 weeks up to 3 months postpartum.

My place is by your side, offering emotional, informational and physical support, whenever appropriate: in supporting you I use tools that belong to my background in psychology, ayurveda and yoga therapy.
